43oh is starting a new series on products which contain the MSP430 controller. Below is the first of the series.

This is an iFixit teardown from August 2013. Looks like the Motorola Moto X is sporting an MSP430F5259 controller( 128Kb Flash and 32Kb RAM ). We are not sure what it controls, but feel free to guess its function in the comments below. iFixit has a much higher resolution of the photo if you really want to peek around those components.

There is also a TMS320C55 300Mhz DSP tucked in there, probably for audio. Thanks to Chicken for the tip!

If you have tips about products using the MSP430 controller, feel free to use the contact form  or in this 43oh forum thread.
